Neil Ellis Wines Amper Bo Tempranillo 2017 (750ml bottles)

100% Tempranillo

Whole-berry fermentation is initiated in a stainless steel tank. The grapes underwent a series of punch-downs and pump-overs until dry. Malolactic fermentation completed in new and second fill French oak barrels. This wine spent 18 months in 50% new French oak barrels and 50% in second fill.

Tasting Notes: A subtle nose reflecting dark and red cherries, violets, herbs  and tobacco leading into a leathery finish. The palate is dense and complex, packed with dark berries and plum which unfolds with great length, freshness and balance, followed by fine, dry, yet smooth tannins.

Optimal drinking now, and for the next 15 years.

This wine is packed in a wooden box.

Winemaker: Warren Ellis
